During a recent interview about the animal charity she founded called Maddie’s Corner.
The charity works to help animals in a number of fab ways, including funding spays, shots and adoptions for shelter pets. You can find Maddie’s Corner in her hometowns of Tulsa, El Lay and in NYC.
She says credits her rural upbringing for her obsession for the furry and feathered. She said:
"I grew up in Oklahoma around a lot of animals, and a lot of my relatives are farmers and ranchers. I have a lot of respect for all kinds and what they can bring to our lives."
Howeves, being a city gal hasn't changed her love one bit - just her pets! The actress reveals,
"I finally became one of those New Yorkers that got a little white fluffy dog. I never thought that she’d take over my life, but she’s given me such joy and she’s made me so happy. I love show business, but this dog basically reminds me of what’s important."
AW!! We can totes relate!!
Chenoweth may be inspired by animals, but we are totally inspired by her caring spirt!
Cows have best friends and become stressed if they are separated, according to research.
In the study cattle were penned on their own, with their best friend or with another cow they did not know for 30 minutes and their heart rates were measured at 15-second intervals.
The research showed cows were very social animals which often formed close bonds with friends in their herd.
Krista McLennan, who made the discovery while working on her PhD at Northampton University, said:
'If we can encourage farmers to keep an eye out for those cows which like to keep their friends with them, it could have some real benefits, such as improving their milk yields and reducing stress for the animals, which is very important for their welfare."
So it turns out happy cows do make happy cheese!
Question: when a cow gets dumped does her bff bring over ice cream? Somehow we don't think so.
